Beoir Cider Competition
The first Beoir Cider Competition has been scehduled to take place at The Wine Rack, Stewartstown on Saturday the 22nd of April 2017.
The competition is open to to all commercial cider or perry producers on the island of Ireland. Entries are €40 per cider, with a maximum of 5 entries per producer. This is due to time and available judges and will hopefully encourage entrants to think about which ciders should be entered. We are also judging amateur "homebrewed" ciders alongside the professional entries. These may be entered at a reduced rate of 6EUR per cider with a maximum of 3 entries per person. A discount code is available in this case, please contact the competition organiser.

The first Dublin Craft Beer Cup was held at the Alltech Gathering Craft Brewing and Distilling Conference at Convention Centre Dublin. The two day conference culminated with the announcement of the gold, silver and bronze medal winners from among a wide selection of beers from Europe, North America and the antipodes, judged by an international panel of experts. In taking the top prize, the Co. Antrim brewery beat such high profile producers as Stone, Thornbridge, Sierra Nevada and Three Floyds.
Medals were also awarded to Carlow Brewing for their Leann Folláin stout (gold), Irish Red (gold), Barrel-aged Leann Folláin (silver), Irish Stout (bronze) and Pale Ale (bronze). Newly arrived Kinsale Pale Ale won a bronze medal and Hilden also took a bronze for their Barney's Brew wheat beer.
Founded in 1981, Hilden is Ireland's oldest independent brewery. Twisted Hop, a 4.7% ABV beer made with Galaxy and Brewer's Gold hops, is one of the newest additions to their range.
